We are going to florida and need a large tent we are taking the twins and my 16 year old need room for beds and maybe some for storage. Would like to keep it under 300.00
Saw a Eureka at backcountry.com but was looking for a bigger fly for that morning dew.
Any help

I have about 7-8 tents. Everything from a bivy to a big cabin tent. For family car amping we use an ozark trail (Wally world brand). Cheap and a great tent for the purpose.

I have a Eureka tent that I have put through hell and even two dang near hurricane force wind and rain storms. We not only stayed dry, but it stayed standing! It is the dome style, so not as roomy as some of the Taj Mahal sizes, but better suited to extreme conditions.

I gave the EXACT same advice on the other site Matt....

IMO, Springbar's are where it is at as far as boat in/drive in camping tents. I am currently deciding what model I am going to purchase for my upcoming White Rim Trail ride...

Anybody know anything about this company?

I can find most of these for under or just over 3 but I don't know anything about the tents or the company. UNLIKE Eureka which I do know

I like the Springbar but a little too pricey right now!

Pick the brand and model of tent that you want and do an internet search including places like Amazon and others.

campmor.com is a great resource as well. If looking for something big, cabelas is also a good place since they focus more on they hunting/fishing crowd.

EJ Funny stuff!! Great minds! I have had alot of use with these tents over the years with scout outings. I plan on getting one this year as well for some family trips to Bear lake. The quality of these tents are superior to any other IMO
